Data or Statistics

Data is the raw information/numbers upon which statistics get created. Data is the primary and statistics is the secondary information source. After you analyze the data it is transformed into statistics.

It is stated that Data  ≠  Information  ≠  Knowledge  ≠  Wisdom  ; so perhaps statistics is a form of information.
